Could be. You do have commonalities, even if the actual symptoms then
differ. And while it looked different when you could trigger it with
3.16 but DaveJ couldn't, that's up in the air now that I doubt that
3.16 really is ok for DaveJ after all..

And you might have a better luck bisecting it, since you seem to be
able to trigger your RCU lockup much more quickly (and apparently
reliably? Correct?)
